The Lilywhites began the new Championship season with a 1-0 victory over QPR at Deepdale, announcing another promotional challenge this term.

Can Alex Neil and his men shift their fortunes around with a League Cup success on Tuesday evening when they take on fellow divisional rivals Middlesbrough in the third round?

The visitors come into this in much higher spirits in spite of failing to break the deadlock in the weekend’s league tie against Swansea City at Riverside. They currently top the Championship standings together with Leeds United.

Preston vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head

  • Boro lead the head to head tie by 8 wins ahead of 62nd encounter against Preston.
  • Middlesbrough are undefeated in last 11 meetings with the Lilywhites. They won seven and drew four along the way.
  • Preston failed to find the back of the net in there of last four matches against Middlesbrough.

Preston vs Middlesbrough: Prediction

Preston have already made an upset in the second round of the League Cup, beating Leeds United 0-2 away at Elland Road. Neil’s men took advantage of the fact Marcelo Bielsa rested his key men in that tie. Tony Pulis will also make certain changes to his starting line-up for this cup tie as the promotion remains team’s main goal for the season.

Anyhow, we just can’t back the hosts to win here given their most recent spell of form. They lost six and drew two of last eight league games and come into this off the back of conceding three goals in each of past three matches along.

Knowing also that Preston did not beat Middlesbrough in last 11 head to head affairs, we just have to take the 1.50 odds offered for the visitors not to lose at Deepdale.

The value is also fine with Middlesbrough to bag two or more goals at the odds of 2.62.

Preston vs Middlesbrough: Bet Tips

  • Middlesbrough or Draw @ 1.50 (1/2)
  • Middlesbrough Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.62 (13/8).
